Atlanta sludge goliaths, SONS OF TONATIUH, kick off another road riot tonight. Set to commence on their home turf at Club 529, the four upcoming domestic shows serve as a precursor to the band's nine-date Japanese takeover next month where the band will drench six unsuspecting cities in their acerbic bottom-end sound implosions.
Comments SONS OF TONATIUH guitarist/vocalist Dan Caycedo, "With some new tunage on the way, a Japanese tour in February, and a solid lineup of myself, Rico and Twitch, 2014 has never looked so good. A new record is in the mix for the Spring of this year and Europe is only a bomb string away! For those of you who have stuck by us and helped us along the way, we owe you our very souls. For without you, we would still be selling ourselves out to the capitalist pigs who pulverize all of our aspirations into dust for their own personal greed."

SONS OF TONATIUH - Caycedo, bassist Twitch and drummer Josh Lomanto - continues to tour in support of their earth-rumbling full-length, Parade Of Sorrow. Issued via Hydro-Phonic Records in 2012, the Kyle Spence (Harvey Milk) produced, grisly riff fest was championed for its "joining of galloping thrash and arching doom, bruising hardcore and crackling guitar solos," by Independent Weekly, likened to "sinking in quicksand" by Exclaim! and continues to charm listeners internationally with its gnarly brand of punk-infused, lead-footed, sludge rock anthems.
Check out Parade Of Sorrow streaming in its entirety at the official SONS OF TONATIUH bandcamp page HERE. "Each number builds around screaming vocal harmonies, unexpected melodies, and monstrous guitar solos. But the real power lies in the uncomplicated design of it all." - Creative Loafing
"...a savagely aggressive, sonically belligerent album that is among the rawest to emerge from the southern USA in the last decade..." - This Is Not A Scene
"...filth-encrusted and viciously heavy..." - One Metal
"...an extremely potent follow-up that any fan of modern day angry sludge can invest in with confidence." - Doommantia
"...a head-on-collision between early Black Sabbath and Eyehategod." - Sea Of Tranquility
"...ten tracks of viscous, hard-livin' Southern doom." - Ad Hoc
"SOT meld the visceral, unrefined DIY sounds of sludge, punk and hardcore into ten tracks and thirty-seven minutes blues for the disenfranchised. SOT songs boomerang from the most atherosclerotic sludge to sick crossover breakdowns and Ginn-esque punk rock." - Hellride
